Stingrays High Performing Athlete Fund

A few years ago the Stingrays Board created a High Performing Athlete Fund and in the 2014-2015 passed a motion to allocate 5% of all fundraising money raised will go towards the High Performing Athlete Fund.. For the 2015-2016 season the Stingrays will fund $500 to each of the three national level meets below, to be applied to the coach's expenses:

· Olympic Trials
· Canadian Age Group Championships
· Canadian Swimming Championships.

Also for the the 2015-2016 season, the Stingrays use the club credit card points to fund the flight expense for one coach to travel out to Age Group Champs/Canadian Swimming Championships.

These two meets are in Calgary and Edmonton respectively and are one week apart so there will only be one flight out and back. All coaches expenses, less the contribution noted above, will be borne evenly by the attending swimmers, as per current process for expense sharing.

For subsequent seasons, the High Performing Athlete committee will convene in September of the upcoming season to review the national level meet schedule, the High Performing Athlete fund and the credit card points to determine what level of support is possible for that season. The committee will bring a recommendation to the board for approval at the September meeting and subsequently notify the membership.
